Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps held a military exercise to test missile and radar systems, in the northeastern province of Semnan, Saturday, with footage shown on state television a day after US President Donald Trump’s administration imposed sanctions on Tehran over the recent ballistic-missile test.

The Revolutionary Guards official website said that the aim of the military exercise was to “showcase the power of Iran’s revolution and to dismiss the sanctions.”

General Amir Ali Hajizadeh, Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps of Aerospace Force (Farsi): “I can definitely announce that the skeleton of the sanctions of enemy’s defence has been smashed today; thanks God we are self-sufficient.”

The superiority of domestic Iranian military achievements, thanks to the Islamic Republic’s massive investment in science, technology, higher education etc., and thanks to its brilliant political and economical management! All these systems were designed, tested, introduced into service and mass-produced in an entirely domestic fashion by Iran, with no outside help, and while under the most restrictive sanctions regime imposed on any country by the world’s superpower. Frankly, you have to give it to the Iranian leadership: one can hardly imagine another leadership faring that well in the face of that many odds, including rabid hostility of the world’s biggest… Read more »

Basiji : Don’t you understand that Khamenei is ruining all Rouhani’s efforts? Now, let’s be clear : Iranian military industry only produce western or Russian reverse engineered gear and I’m far to be sure they reversed all this by themselves as it’s an open secret that either Chineses or Israelis previously reversed this gear and you seem not knowing that Iran has (I should maybe said had?) very very nice behind the scene relations with Israel… In 2014, 2 Israelis were arrested in the US after having exported “just” for 35M$ of spare-parts for F-4 Phantom II to Iran… So… Read more »

Ok, let’s cut through your hasbara-ridden, chutzpah-laden mass of lies one by one. No, Iran does not “only” produce reverse-engineered gear. The Sayyad and modifications on the R’ad, which are visible in this video, already prove this. I could go on multiplying examples, from domestically designed assault rifles to the Fateh submarine which have no equivalents anywhere in the world, but you already disqualified yourself with that first paragraph. Because you deliberatey chose to ignore the Sayyad system you saw in the clip, knowing full well it is a domestic Iranian design, not a reverse-engineered copy of anything. “Behind the… Read more »

Lol, stop flooding this board with third-rate hasbara when you cannot even distinguish the obvious differences between the Iranian Ra’d and the Russian Buk SAM-systems. Ra’d may be based on Buk, it is no reverse-engineered copy, but obviously heavily modfied.

As for the Sayyad system, it is pretty obvious that it isn’t based on any other existing system, nor is it a reverse-engineered copy of anything.

Stop lying, you will not fool anyone here because your knowledge on these topics is nil.

VERY SAD to see U.S.-Iran relationship going further south. This is not good for either country.
